Theft thwarter

You are lounging at the beach, the pool, the park, and you need to step away from your valuables for just a bit to swim, run after your child, find your golf ball — whatever. Where to securely stash your stuff to deter filching?

If any kind of railing is handy — the back of a chair, a bike frame, golf cart rail, stroller handle — you’ve got the AquaVault. The 10-inch by 7-inch by 4.5-inch-deep lightweight white plastic lockbox has plenty of room for wallets, watches, mobile phones, jewelry, keys and documents. Snap the lid shut over the hull, and turn the knob activating the integrated three-digit combination lock (you set your own combo) to protect your valuables.

Openings on both sides of the lid secure the lockbox to railings up to two inches in diameter. Of course, a determined thief could make off with the whole chair, bike or stroller, but the lockbox puts your valuables under cover and works as a deterrent to casual grab-and-run thieves.

AquaVault is $39.95 at www.theaquavault.com.
